Perfect! Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese

Over at "Stacy Makes Sense," she posted a recipe for Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese.  You can see her post HERE. I am taking NO credit for this, but I made it today and I HAVE to share it with you!  Actually, Stacy writes that she got the recipe from Kayla.

I followed her recipe and adapted for what I had on hand.  Oh. My. Goodness!  This stuff is the BEST mac and cheese I have EVER eaten and it was very easy!

Crockpot Macaroni and Cheese

1/2 pound uncooked macaroni pasta
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used my homemade cheese)
3 cups whole milk (I used our goat milk)
2 eggs
3/4 teaspoon sea salt (I used Realsalt)
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl.  Whisk thoroughly.
Add the milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and mustard and whisk again.
Stir in the macaroni and 2.5 cups of shredded cheese (reserve the extra 1/2 cup.)
Pour it all into a Crockpot (the one I used is 2.5 quarts, but I'm sure you could use a larger one if you like.)
Sprinkle the reserved shredded cheese over the top. Put on the lid and set on "low."

The recipe said to let it cook for 5 hours.  Mine was done in 3 hours and 40 minutes, so do be looking in there without lifting the lid to see what you think.  I could tell it was probably done by how it looked and how it smelled, so I checked it.  Delicious! Tender! Creamy!  You will love this.

Here is what I ate, with some of yesterday's leftover baked beans, for lunch.  :D






I had to control myself, it was so good!

    1. I made it this week. Everyone loved it! However, it was done in only 2 hours! I used a big oval crock pot. I don't have much it holds. I'm wondering if crock pot temperature varies a lot? Next time I'll double the recipe. I was also thinking of omitting the mustard powder and using a little bit of nutmeg instead.

    2. I think they do vary a lot. Some of the newer ones get hotter.mine are all old. Please let me know how your next batch works out. What kind of cheese did you use?

    3. It was a mix of cheddar and jack I think. I need to look at the bag! I plan on making it tomorrow again so I'll let you know.

    1. I'm so glad! How long did you have to cook yours? What size Crockpot did you use? I made it yesterday for the second time. Oh.. it's SO good.

  5. My little girl made the most delightful supper yesterday. She is a pasta and dairy products fan. Her granny used to make pasta and dairy macaroni and cheese casserole over the oven, while everyone else was purchasing containers of Kraft.
